comment How to transition from Technical Writing to Usability/User Experience and pick up the necessary skills to build an entry level portfolio?
I find that most pro bono projects are looking to redesign their sites. I've done a few of those by providing mockups to some and IA recommendations to others. Is it normal to see these volunteered tasks reflected in portfolios?

Trevor - I think you are right. I might have better luck pursuing direct relationships.

Regarding exploring options at my current workplace, I've gotten as far as I can. I've always written off starting as a Tech writer at a different corporation as a setback from moving forward in the field of UX but it might be time to reconsider.
